Exciting observations!

I haven’t been doing the exercises for long but I already feel like I can see a difference. My waistline already feels more defined, and my core strength is already much better. Eeeeh exciting!

#2- Ten minute 6 pack workout. (Work Day)

Think I worked out which one it is that left me stiff around the upper abdominals this morning. Still, it feels good in a way. Onwards and upwards!

Woke up today and went to work. Mid way through shift I start noticing my arms and legs ache. I think this is good but I’m gonna have to have a soak before I do any exercise today! @_____@

Day Off Routine (#1)

So today was a day for working through all the exercises on The Ten Minute Solution. For today I ended up breaking it into three segments- twenty minutes this morning plus twenty sit-ups, twenty minutes again at lunch plus twenty more sit-ups, and just completed the final ten minutes and rounded off with ten sit-ups to wrap the day up!

I can feel it! Boy can I feel it. But disappointingly, not as far as I would have hoped! I want to work the muscles all around the waistline, pull it in! So I’ve looked some extra bits up to try to add to my post DVD bit. Hopefully the video underneath will give me a bit of definition, but I wonder what other exercises are out there!

Exercises for the External Obliques : Exercise & Yoga (by eHowFitness)

Posting this one because I think I want to work these muscles as well. Probably going to work them in with my sit ups!

Things I’ve noticed already

I’ve done two sets of twenty minute workouts today with twenty sit ups after each.

I’ve one more to go but it’s nice to note that I’m actually massively hungry now! Very happy with that.

Personal Goals, take two.

Tumblr ate my first draft of this so take two!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately on what I want to achieve by doing exercise. It’s no good doing different things with no real goal in mind. So with that said excuse the rambling post!

I’m about 5 feet and 2 inches tall, a UK 10 on top and a small 12 on my lower half (Do she got a booty? She dooooo). For the most part I’m pretty happy with how I look, except for the fact I have a bit of a tum.

So for now my aim is to tone that up. Currently I’m working with an exercise DVD called The Ten Minute Solution. It’s a series of five different workouts of about ten minutes, designed to deal with abs and obliques. They can be done as single ten minute workouts, or you can do as many or as few as you like. Conveniently, my landlady also has a sit-up bench that she’s generously allowing me to use.

So the plan so far has been that when I’m working, I aim to do a ten minute segment plus sit ups. On days off, I want to break the whole thing into 2-3 segments over the course of the day, plus sit ups to make up for where they run short. Why so little on work days? I happen to work very very long days as a carer, so given I’m on my feet for most of the day I want to do what I feel capable of. It’s as much about getting over the mental block as it is the physical one.

Eventually, once I’m used to that, I think I’d like to add in some thigh toning exercises and see if I can earn myself a HEALTHY thigh gap (I love food too much to starve for one), but for now, I want a toned waistline back. Wish me luck!

pinched this from my main blog- another exercise plan. Trying to get a run of them put together so I don’t do the same one every day and get bored!
